"Every biker knows that if you don't ride in the rain, you don't really ride...."
I came across this statement at a website for a pretty cool product- a helmet/bike cam.
Here's the link to show I'm not making this up:
The statement got me thinking, and I would like to pose a few questions to the members here with no right or wrong answers:
1. Do you as a rider agree with this statement?
You can simply answer "yes" or "no" or you can elaborate.
I imagine most riders have been caught in some rain at least once to some degree or another. I've read some posts here of some rather long distances in the rain. For those who have:
2. How far or how long did you continue in the rain?
a) until it let up (or until you got to where you were going)?
b) until you got to the next overpass or dry spot to wait it out (assuming no rain gear)?
c) until you got to the next place to take shelter in a dry restaurant/store/hotel/etc. to
wait it out?
d) until you could navigate to an alternate course/route that was dry?
3. For those who have a choice of using a cage or riding your bike when you find it raining, how many take the bike anyway?
4. For those who would be riding two-up, how does this, if any, influence your answers to the above?
Again, no right or wrong answers. Just curious to know.
